More than 100 years ago it became a shoe store. Today it carries on that tradition instilled in its current owners by longtime owner Leroy "Fritz" Hughes, who took over half a century ago. "We were around 30 years old, and we wanted to know where we were going to be at," said Rod Hauschildt, who owns the store with business partner Jim Boxrud. In 1965, Hughes had hired Hauschildt away from his job as a salesman at Red Wing Shoe Co. When Hughes had an opening six months later, Hauschildt recommended Boxrud -- also a Red Wing Shoe Co. employee.

Xcel Energy and the Prairie Island Tribal Council have reached a tentative agreement Monday regarding proposed increased storage of spent fuel at the Prairie Island nuclear plant. The agreement is contingent on a referendum by tribal members, which is expected to be done by April 17. The agreement would boost Xcel's standing as it asks the Minnesota Legislature to approve additional on-site storage of nuclear waste. "It does help to remove one issue that legislators have expressed concerns about," said Scott Wilensky, Xcel's executive director of state government affairs.<
